Skerries prove ideal hosts

THE always-impressive Skerries U16 squad hosted 29 players and coaches from Grenoble between Thursday, March 14 and Sunday, March 16.

From the moment the visiting squad arrived in Skerries and their flag was hoisted at Holmpatrick, the hosts looked after their French guests with traditional Irish warmth and hospitality.

A full calendar of activities, including Skerries Sea tours and Paintball in Courtlough, culminated in a fantastic day on Saturday at Skerries Rugby club starting with a match between Skerries U16s and the "GUC" Squad and finishing with a bit of a hooley in the club.
